Dispensers for Safe Water
A healthier world through proven safe water innovations.
Our mission is to provide safe water to vulnerable populations through the Chlorine Dispenser System. We work with public, private and non-profit sector partners and local communities to implement evidence-based, cost-effective and sustainable programs. We strive to continuously innovate, evaluate and adapt our programs to maximize health impact.
Dispensers for Safe Water has been awarded the Stone Family Foundation Prize for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Water. Said Founder John Stone,
"Dispensers for Safe Water really stood out to me for being unique in its approach to providing safe drinking water in an area of rural Africa where poor water quality is a major cause of potentially fatal illnesses such as diarrhoea and typhoid. I was impressed by the dynamic and enthusiastic team behind the project and am delighted that the money from this prize will enable them to take their work forward and scale it up."
DSW would like to thank the Stone Family Foundation for their generous support. More information on the award and selection process can be found in the Stone Family Foundation press release or the IPA blog post.
New Social Enterprise to Scale Up Program with Proven Impact
We are pleased to announce a new social enterprise nurtured by IPA which will focus on scaling cost-effective interventions. Dispensers for Safe Water is an initiative borne of IPA’s research and incubated within IPA to increase access to safe drinking water, and will transition from IPA to this new organization over the next few years. Click here for more information about this coming transition.
With your generous contribution, a village in East Africa will gain access to safe water through the Chlorine Dispenser System. This investment will support the healthy, long-term development of children in this community and reduce the chance that these children will die from preventable waterborne diseases.
